Tucker provided a great environment of fun classic rock music for my daughter's graduation party. The kids and adults enjoyed listening and dancing to the music. Would definitely hire him again.
I have been taking guitar lessons from Kimberly via Skype for about six years. I really like her teaching style which is systematic and focused. She tailors her lessons to my goals and time. Her teaching method is to help you gain insight and skill through patient practice of gradually changing exercises. She doesn't snow you with theory, but presents it to you in digestible amounts just when it will make sense. She welcomes questions and I always learn from our discussions. She has led me to learn techniques on the guitar that I was absolutely sure I could never learn. For something to seem impossible at the start, to seem possible a week later and to be routine a month later is amazingly uplifting. Kimberly's background was first a life of teaching herself and playing gigs with all kinds of bands in all kinds of places. She has also deepened and strengthened her knowledge by gaining academic degrees in guitar and jazz and also by studying under masters. This gives her an incredibly deep understanding of learning and teaching music, an immense skill in playing guitar, and an appreciation for the challenges of playing with other people. I especially love her continued enthusiasm for guitar and that she really enjoys teaching. I have found in Kimberly the best of teachers and highly recommend her without reservation.
Jamie really is the most amazing music teacher! I hired her to introduce my 4 year old daughter to violin. Jamie is Suzuki certified and has years of experience teaching children of all ages (and adults). When she arrived, my daughter was shy, but Jamie brought her out with her natural charm. It probably didn't hurt that Jamie has a young child of her own at home! She clearly knows about attention span and how to pace a lesson. By the end of the lesson, my daughter was comfortably holding the violin and eager to make sounds. One thing which I really appreciated was the fact that Jamie spent 10 minutes afterwards filling me in on her impressions, giving me pointers as to how to nurture a budding interest, and talking through the Suzuki process. Before falling asleep later that night, my daughter said, "I love the violin!" Wow. She had shown zero interest before. This lesson exceeded ALL expectations! Jamie is a real gem!!!!
Great band! Great music! Very professional! Very nice attitude!
I'm a rock keyboardist from St.Louis MO. I've studied with Kevin on and off over the last 15 years and it was usually when I had an audition or gig with a major touring artist, Kevin would work me through the material and then create exercises in that genre to really bring me up to speed quickly, I actually said to him once "You have to help me with this song, I sound like Axl Rose playing a bad waltz" well he did and I got through the gig
Taylor created a very professional, radio ready song for me. He works extremely fast and knows how to construct modern music that sounds like he hired a full band. The mix was fantastic music and singer alike. I highly recommend Taylor for your project.
Michael Wilde and Neil Hartman are terrific! What a repertoire! Versatile, joyful---everything from the Great American Song Book to classic rock. We loved 'em!
Reckless was the host band for my wife's recent surprise birthday party. They were professional in every way. Kim was always responsive to texts and emails as the date got closer. On the night of the event they were an absolute pleasure. So many of the attendees were impressed with their set list and musicality. I would highly recommend them as a classic rock cover band.
WOW! What an amazing band! We were absolutely blown away by these amazing musicians it is clear that they are all at the top of the field. We chose to book the 6 Piece with both male and female singers and boy! can they really really SING. They sounded amazing, looked fresh and fun and had such energy every single person at our wedding was on there feet even my dad who is 83. We had an absolute blast and everyone could not stopped raving about the band they asked if we stole them from American Idol!!!! I can tell you from the moment we were in contact they were communicative professional and handled everything, even thinking of things we haven't even thought of yet like lighting and sound requirements. The MC was charismatic, funny and charming and was able to tell our story with such class that my wife and I were in tears. We looked around for 6 months before choosing a band most great wedding bands were way way out of the budget, they were reasonably priced and for what you get which is one of the best bands i've ever seen at a wedding I actually think we should have been paying double or more like some of the bands we first looked at that weren't even as good. So thats my rant. Amazing. Blown Away. Memories for a lifetime. They do book up early were lucky we had our wedding on a Sunday so it wasn't a problem. If it was on Saturday we may not have been as lucky!
My son started formal drum lessons with Steve two and a half years ago. Steve set the bar on professionalism, flexibility, communication, and has the patience to teach music to younger kids. My son went from a kid banging on a toy drum, to a musician that could play drum set rhythms in an elementary school jazz band. We've had other instructors since Steve left the Los Alamitos area but none of them compared to his high level of attributes listed earlier.
I have worked with Bob on various levels. First, Bob provided me with private guitar lessons for several years. Bob made the learning experience fun and enjoyable. I was able to learn and play the kind of music that I wanted to play. Bob is also very patience (staying with me for so many years is a true testament to this!). My youngest son Michael also took private guitar lessons from Bob. On a more professional level, Bob and his band performed at my oldest son's (Bobby) wedding receipion. It was a "blast" with all of the guests dancing and singing. I actually received a call years later from an attending guest asking for Bob's contact information for their wedding reception (obviously they had very fond memories of the event and Bob's music). If and when my 2 remaining kids get married, I can guaranty Bob will be going the music. He makes an event a real party!!!
The John Brown Band played the Redondo Beach 4th of July Block Party and had the whole neighborhood rockin' out all night long. What a party!! After I heard them play, I knew I wanted to hire them for my wedding in San Diego on August 29. We had a great experience working with John and would recommend them in a heartbeat. The #1 comment from our wedding guests was how awesome the band was!! Upbeat song selection, dance-ability, and timing were perfect, even with no rehearsal on the Bridal Party Entrance!!! They even played a very special song (Harvest Moon) which I had totally forgotten to request - just perfect. And we got some GREAT pictures. :)
My daughter had a wonderful experience dealing with Cindy. She's is flexible with our busy schedule. My daughter learn french horn from cindy since middle school. She is now playing in her high school band and was able to played anything quickly . She owed it to cindy for having good tone. She improved very quickly through Cindy methods of teaching. Cindy is patients and also took real interest in my daughter ability. I'm glad my daughter have such a great teacher. Thank you Cindy!
Great musician! Can do many genres of music! Hire this guy and you won't be disappointed 😎
CJ is an excellent teacher. He is super knowledgeable, patient and professional. Plus, this guy rocks and is super talented! Would recommend any day A+++++++
Worked with my son to improve for school band. Worked with him on his level. Was patient, reliable and my son loved him.
I have known Jennifer Deirmendjian for 12 years now and worked with her musically on solo projects off and on as well as performances in bands. She plays and writes violin beautifully. I have learned so much from her musicianship in rehearsals on a professional level more than anyone I have ever worked with. She is patient, kind and disciplined. I highly recommend her teaching experience as she has been my mentor and inspired me in so many ways!
The Breakfast Club was terrific. When the band played, they sound Great! AND they included most of my guests in the karaoke part of the show. Thumbs up. Hire them! Thomas D. , Encino, CA
